New York, New Yo...
edit: i’ve worn this dress TWICE since i made it… so to the flickr swap pool it goes.
i wanted a loose summer dress to pick hubby up from the airport as it was three hundred and ten degrees here, so i decided to lengthen the jane… the boobs were WAY too big, i cut a 36, so i added darts and did something funky with the straps. i’m thinking of changing the straps to a different color, and adding a tie belt a la my BWOF shirt— OH! most importantly! i added extra width to the center fold, and did pin tucks to (hopefully) make it look less like a nightie.
i was sort of monumentally impressed with myself when i made this up, then when i finally acquired my first BWOF issue and found a similar shirt pattern, my ego became quite deflated. regarding this dress, at least :)
